("The Great Christmas Light Fight" is a new competition series in which 20 families from across America will decorate their homes to the extreme for Christmas - in ways that would certainly make even Clark Griswold envious - with a total of $250,000 in prizing ($50,000 won each week).

Monday on TV: Decorate your house for Christmas, win $50,000

Apparently, you can turn anything into a reality/competition show. The Great Christmas Light Fight (8 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4) features families battling to create the best holiday light display. Really.

This five-episode series features four families per week - chosen based on their previous elaborate Christmas light displays, incredible choreography and over-the-top designs - with $50,000 each week.
